  • My friends son really wanted Xbox 360 Premium, so he traded in his old PS2 and games at Game Station. After trade in value he walked away with Xbox 360 Premium, 2 games of his choice ( both new releases so expensive games ) and a wireless controller this was a bundle deal they had in store last week. The total cash price he paid was £147.00, he thinks he got a really good deal, just thought this might be an idea for someone else.

    I'm looking for a decent Wii package. Not bothered whether it comes on launch day or not, but within a week of it. Thinking an online retailer may be best - anyone know where!?
